Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

What do you mean with your question? Do you want to know how to update/keep up to date your Linux system? It would help us a lot if you tell us what distro and version you are using. The more information you provide the better we can help.

Kind regards,

Eric

Read your distro (ubuntu, opensuse, fedora, etc) release notes. If that isn't what you are looking for then post more information but that is what I got out of your question.

Your distribution might also have a mailing list that you can subscribe to that will announce various items. There may even be specific lists for sub-topics like security. your distributions main web site should have some information on this. According to the icon by your name, you are using Fedora, and yes the Fedora project has a mailing list you can subscribe to. There is also the Fedora FAQ page. Here is a link to that page, which will take you to the section on finding out about security updates.

It depends on your distribution. If you want to install your updates on a Debian(-based) system, open up a console and type
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

1. Need to know what distribution you are using (debain, ubuntu, fedora, or what ever you may be using)

2. Google is your best friend. To much to list

3. You need a goal or starting point. What are some things you are most interested in doing with Linux. Google will help you alot here too. But still need more info.

Hello,

You need to invest more time in your posts. You're not giving any useful information for us to help you or to point you in the right direction. As pointed out by several users already if you tell us what distro you are using (Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Mint, ...) we will be able to guide you.

If you want to know more about Linux then the best advice anyone can give you is read, read and then read some more. After that practice, practice and practice some more. Good starting points are theses:
The Linux Documentation Project
Man pages

In order to resolve any issue/problem/question you might have the first place that gives you answers is Google. It's highly doubtful that you will obtain becoming a master in what you call Linux environment in all aspects since the matter is so vast and covers so many areas that it would be humanly impossible to obtain it all.

You'd first have to make a choice with what part of Linux you want to start and take it from there.

Good luck on your quest for knowledge and have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric

This is still very vague I don't know about anyone else but I know I can't read your mind and I don't even wish to give advice on a subject unless I understand what the subject is. PLEASE BE MORE HELPFUL if you want help.

1. Your machine will notify you of updates.
2. You can't possibly know everything in such a short time without reading up on it. Given time you will learn a lot, but you have to focus on 1 thing at a time.
3. It is possible, but that is going to take a lot of time, patience and reading. When you get stuck there are a lot of volunteers who spend their time answering these posts to assist all who require it.

If you get in trouble think about a specific question and ask yourself if there's enough information if you were replying to the question

1. How long have you had the system installed and what have you done?
2. If you have installed this OS you've actually started and it appears that you have an internet connection.
Are you experiencing any problems?

Best starting point would be to learn how to ask a question: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

That said, the starting points in Linux can be any of the following:

1. Linux system administration.
2. Programming in Linux environment.
3. Dealing with Linux kernel modules/drivers.


You don't know what all that means? Ask what you don't understand, be specific.

Maybe this is the better question. Are you just trying to have a desktop to play movies, listen to music, and just general media?

1. well, at last we know what your distro is now; F13. It should automatically notify you when updates are available.
This place is dedicated to Fedora http://www.fedoraforum.org/

2. There's an almost infinite amt of stuff to learn; you need to pick a specific topic and start there.
Just for a comparison, see here http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html, most of which should be the same on Fedora.

3. See 2.
